The Researcher Development online tool has been available for a few weeks now. In case you missed the announcement, here’s the gist: the tool allows you to search for research-related resources and events across AUT. It lists several hundred workshops, online guides, seminars, conferences, advisory services, and special events. You can search for help with a new methodology, find upcoming networking events, identify who to contact with research concerns, get info on research seminars in your field, and so on.
PG students at the last mix & mingle got to see a demo – this is what they had to say afterwards: (click the heading of this post if you can’t see the video.)
Now it’s your turn! Try the tool here, enter your ID & password, and enter your search criteria on the right-hand side of the screen. (Be sure to search events “Tailored to: Postgraduate students” to eliminate anything that’s for staff members only.)
Oh, and by the way, there’s another mix & mingle on 23rd July at 4pm in WG308 (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org). This one includes a ceremony for recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s Doctoral Scholar Awards. Come along to chat with other postgrads and staff from the University Postgraduate Centre… or just come for the free food.
